I just bought a Bushnell 4200 elite 2.5X10X40 for my 30-06 do you guys think that the eye relief is too short for the recoil of this rifle?

Unless you got the youth version and it only weights 4 lbs. No.  Why do you think it would, just curious or an odd 06?

If the stock fits you reasonably well and the rifle is not very lightweight, you'll be just fine.

Make sure you mount the scope as low as possible.  A good cheek weld is pretty important if you are afraid of gettin ghit by the scope.

I hate the 4200 so much that I now own 6 of them. One is on a 300 WM, and never had a problem with eye relief. Great scopes!!!

Well I hope I hate the 4200 as much as you. Still waiting for the new 30-06 to come in. I'm also looking for a high quality two piece mount and ring for it both in silver due to the fact that is the color I got. The barrel is a heavy, stainless steel, fluted barrel so it should look real nice on it..... Just can't find a high qual. silver mount and rings that's all????
